2 viewsThe bodice tucking shown is all done "on the flat", on the fabric folded in half on the crosswise grain prior to the pattern being cut out. Because the tucks are done in advance, and the bodice is cut all in one piece, the bodice back falls on the bias, placing the tucks on the diagonal to create the "chevron" arrangement shown here.

This was a common technique in Edwardian tucked blouses, where the complex tucking was far easier to do on a flat piece of material than after the pattern was cut. See next photo for close-up of the back.
